Historic Hood River
I wasn’t sure how you could enter Washington from Oregon and still keep the Columbia River to your left, but it turns out they didn’t move the river since Alva Day visited in 1940. While most traffic to the Tri-cities now uses Interstate 82, you can still take route 730 and see this view, mostly unchanged by the passage of decades.
Guesses on the automobile? My first thought was Chevy Master Deluxe, but the radiator doesn’t quite match.
